after announcing the news late last night. as part of the agreement, mexico will deploy national guard troops throughout their country, take on human smuggling operations and allow migrants crossing into the u.s. to be returned to mexico as they await a decision on their asylum claims. now in exchange, the u.s. has agreed to speed up the asylum process. live from the white house, with us now cnn white house correspondent sarah westwood. so, sarah, the white house framing this as a victory. >> reporter: that is right christi and victor. trump is awake and touting that they struck an agreement with the mexico delegation to stop a 5% tariff on all goods from mexico and mexico has agree to depl deploy forces to stop those who come up through mexico to the southern border and mexico
agreeing to allow asylum securities to wait on the mexican side of the border while the asylum claims are being adjudicated. president trump framing his agreement as a potential success writing, mexico will try very hard sand if they do that this will be a very successful agreement for both of the united states and mexico. now the deal came about after marathon talks here in washington with that mexican delegation led on the u.s. side by secretary of state mike pom and they reached 11 hours of talks at the state department. administration officials had signaled they were prepared to move ahead with the president's tariff threat if they didn't reach the deal. there was hope one could be struck by monday. the mexican ambassador said that mexico is prepared to take unprecedented steps to make this agreement happen. take a listen. >> as a result of these discussions the united states
and mexico commit to a mexican enforcement surge, mexico will take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular immigration to include the deployment of national guard throughout mexico, given priority to its southern border,mexico is also taking the attempt to dismantle human smuggles and trafficking organizations as well as illicit financial and transportation networks. >> now many republicans on capitol hill had expressed concerns about the president's threat and afraid this could hurt american businesses, that it could koflt u.s. consumers. they had sought a delay in the tariffs which the president announced before heading overseas so he wasn't present for many of the discussions but now the situation avoided with the president walking back that tariff threat. >> still more work to do, though. sarah westwood at the white house. thank you. now with the extra border enforcement and help in breaking up trafficking networks, the
u.s. got almost everything it wanted from mexico. >> the talks aren't over. they are going to go on for another three months, we know. cnn national correspondent di e dianne gallagher live from el paso, texas. talk to us but how people at the border are reacting, diane. and good morning. >> reporter: good morning, christi, victor, in terms of the fact that tariffs aren't going to be imposed, at least it appears right now, that is a bit of a sigh of relief. the mexico president tweeted shortly after president trump thanking the mexican people for their support. he then noted that they're going to gather to celebrate today in tijuana at 5:00 to celebrate this fact. but as far as migration goes, will this affect that? we'll see. the numbers of it look like this in more than a decade. nearly 133,000 people apprehended by customs and border protection for crossing into the u.s. illegally in just
the month of may. families making up the majority more than 11,000 of them unaccompanied children. the acting cbp commissioner calling it a full-blown emergency. government processing centers and shelters overcrowded and some to dangerous levels with unsanitary and unsafe conditions. according to the department of homeland security washington dog agency. >> translator: it was so crowded. my son had to sleep standing up. >> reporter: this woman crossed over into texas with her two sons in hopes of getting to family in houston. instead she along with hundreds of other migrant families were flown to california to make room. >> we didn't realize that folks would be flown into san diego. san diego is a great place to live but -- so it did take us by surprise and it is apparently three plane load as week. around 135, 150 per plane load. we've given up on a logic model to this whole model. there is no logic model.
>> reporter: the reason for the surge in migration are layered. right now people who live in guatemala sand honduras are facing intense economic and environmental conditions with ever-present violence and a drought limiting food availability. but that is been happening for a long time. critics of the white house say this most recent extreme spike in movement is a direction result of the president's policies. >> they're saying the big change is the message that this is your last chance, president trump, if your ever going to escape these dire circumstances, you have to come now. >> reporter: and as president trump focused on beefing up security, a wall, more border patrol agents and adding u.s. troops -- >> today we have approximately 2,000 service members supporting the mission along the southwest border. >> reporter: experts say smugglers are becoming more sophisticated. central american families more aware of u.s. laws and the likelihood they won't be deported in large numbers.
at least right away. focusing far more on success stories for neighbors than threats from the white house. and, again, they are still seeing a steady stream of people trying to get in over the unauthorized portions of the border right now. victor, christi. >> they're building facilities to hold the unaccompanied minors as they attempt to fight sponsors here in the united states but as you saw they are running out of room and hoping in some way this could alleviate this problem in the short-term. >> dianne gallagher, thank you so much. and she mentioned the stream of people still coming in. we had cameras at the border to signify that. >> yeah. and really the sheer emotion showed just how dramatic an issue this is. you saw the numbers coming through. this is what gary tuchman found when he was at the border. >> reporter: what we witnessed and what you're about to see was
kay at -- chaotic depressing and sad. we spent the afternoon with a border patrol in a van near el paso, texas, and what we saw in a 60-minute span was them apprehend eight family units and most of them children and every five or ten minutes people would come out of the rio grande. the first person was mara andee macy ated with a 6-month-old son and a baby and they were all hungry and thirsty and sick. she was very poor and she had to come from guatemala because she had no money left and no means. she heard in her town that people had gotten to the united states as long as they brought children and they had gotten here safely and she was apprehended. we met sandy, who didn't come from any children, she's about to have a child and 8 1/2 months pregnant and she came from honduras and spent three weeks taking buses and trains and walking to get to the united states and her husband and brother were killed by the gang
members and was afraid it would happen to her too and had to leave. and then a man with his two sons was apprehended he started crying. >> tears of happiness that he made it with his son. he's very happy. >> reporter: and we saw that for many of the people cry out of sense of relief, crying out of happiness when they arrive and realized they were no longer on the journey. something very notable. the rio grande is what separates texas from mexico. the middle of the rio grande is the border. here it is dry and people could walk across on the rocks and then they saw this huge 18-foot fence which is about a thousand feet to the north of the river. all of them said they had to figure a way to get over the fence. the border patrol said you're already in the united states. you crossed the river. they were greatly relieved. so this fence does nothing to stop people from entering the land of the united states. one thing i could tell you is that the border patrol agents we worked with are very professional and they are very
considerate and they're ambassadors to the country and they do a great job being ambassadors to these people who have gone through an awful lot. this is gary tuchman, cnn, in el paso, texas. >> gary, thank you. former vice president joe biden reversing course on abortion funding. the question now is, is this going to help him or hurt his campaign? >> plus tensions growing between the u.s. and russia after this video shows a russian destroyer nearly slamming into a u.s. aircraft carrier. congressman ted yoho, a member of the foreign affairs committee, joins us to talk about that.

let's talk -- about abors rights because that is sent rl in the 2020 election. a new cnn poll that shows three in ten americans would only vote for a candidate who shared their views on that issue. now former vice president joe biden reversed his long stance on the hyde amendment that allows federal funds for abortion. let's talk to washington bureau chief of the chicago sun times lynn sweet. it is good to see you. thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> good morning. so when we look at how important this issue is to people it might make people wonder if the president -- the vice president's decision to back away from the hyde amendment is authentic or if it is politically driven.
what is the assertion or the assessment there in washington of that? >> well, my analysis is given the timing that this is politically driven. there are certain many opportunities through the years for biden to disavow the hyde amendment. many democrats had to end up voting for it. but they made it clear they didn't like it. because the hyde amendment was just stuck on to a lot of must-pass bills. so given the timing and that he's -- at this crucial point in his early days of his 2020 presidential run, my analysis is, yes, it is clearly linked to politics. >> okay. let's listen together to what simone sanders with his campaign had to say when she was pressed on it. >> but for years -- he's held a position that blocks out those women based on their zip code justifying it by saying this is part of his religious beliefs which is a fair argument to make it is just that it is odd to say this is so deeply held religious, emotional
philosophical and then say, well, actually, no longer. >> well i don't think he said no longer. >> he didn't say no longer. is there any chance that there is a risk of him flipping on this issue? >> no. and in politics there is an old saying, christi, when you explain, you lose. now, the most important thing is that former vice president biden is a strong supporter of abortion rights. so the core issue here is whether or not this hyde management is -- impacts the core position that biden, as every democrat person running for president now has to protect and support abortion rights. the federal funding issue erodes that right for women who depend on medicaid, that state federal program. i don't think there is any risk now of biden publicly saying he
wants the government to continue banning federal funds for abortion. so i wouldn't -- that is an attenable poli attenable political and it is a self-inflicted wound and they walked into this and they've got to figure out a way to determne if the damage is done, if there is still some bleeding from this issue or if they have it bottled up. i suspect not. especially with the first round of debates coming up at the end of june in miami. >> yeah. so there was interesting numbers out of texas this week. it seems vice president biden is beating president trump in polls there, 48% to 44%. is that reflective of the men or the parties or is it showing that maybe texas isn't reliably republican any longer? >> well we know there had been some movement in texas with beto
o'rourke's unsuccessful senate run nonetheless he made a strong showing. biden for now is the front-runner. i don't think these polls show as much about biden as a growing democratic electorate in texas which had seen such a red state, it would be hard to imagine it turning blue ever. so my analysis is more there iss is -- there is in roads democrats are making and i'm not sure it is for biden only or if other democrats, if they turn out to be stronger than biden could reap that reward too. >> i want to ask you about the tariffs here because we have this agreement on the table now between the u.s. and mexico, tariffs are off the table at the moment. they will not go into effect on monday. but when we talk about the politics behind all of this, does this agreement replace president trump's wall, otherwise will it satisfy his
base. >> this is good -- i looked before we went on, trump is now in an all camp mode on tweet asserting mexico will buy agricultural products and that makes all stories one. no, i don't think -- nothing ever replaces the wall. i believe in the president trump world and in his thought. this is just something that he will be fixated on and we will see if mexico can really execute this. for the moment, if he has been able to parlay this threat into stemming the migrant tide, this will increase his standing with his base. >> all right, lynn sweet, always appreciate having you on. thank you, ma'am. >> thank you. so this video shows a russian warship nearly crashing into a u.s. aircraft carrier. now this near collision is part of the escalating tensions between the countries. why is this happening and what will the u.s. do about it? an autopsy results back
revealing new details regarding how three american died in the domincan republic. and find out why this colorado tum -- couple, they too, became violently ill while staying at that same resort. >> blood boiling. it is too coincidental with the symptoms we had for me to gyp to stay quiet about it.

the u.s. and mexico have reached a deal to avoid the threat of tariffs on mexican goods. now some republican lawmakers were concerned saying that the move could ultimately lead to higher prices for american businesses as well as the mexican economy. joining me now to discuss is gop congressman ted yoho of florida who supported the tariffs and i expect supports the deal that has been crafted overnight. congressman, welcome back. >> thanks, victor. i look forward to talking to you. >> certainly. let's do that now. so let's start here with this deal. the deal really is a means to an end, right. the question is what is that end? the president said we're going to create -- we're going to put tariffs on the imports unless border crossings stop. a couple of months ago he said we're going to close the border unless these crossings stop. now zero apprehensions is not really realistic. what is the number that would
satisfy you, this administration, of monthly crossings? is it 50,000 or 10,000, what is the number? >> well, actually i think zero is feasible. and i think if you have good immigration policies and good border security, why not. how many people get on an airplane without going through tsa. saying that, to go from where we're at now, if you look at january, think we're at 49,000 illegal apprehensions at the end of may, it was at 97,000, we need to go back prior to where there was a way that we could handle all of the people coming in so that wire not overloaded and i would say 10,000 to 20,000 would be a minimum. >> okay, well, congressman -- >> as far as coming in. >> when you say zero. there has v not been zero apprehension since eisenhower.
>> i realize that. >> so zero is not realistic and it hasn't been below 10,000 in decades. the numbers that you're saying would satisfy the administration, how-how does that happen if it hasn't happened in decades when there is 10,000 apprehensions a month at the border? >> again, we should set a policy -- what are we trying to do? we're trying to have legalized immigration for people coming in this country the proper way. there is always going to be people sneaking in. and i agree with that. but why not have a goal of saying this is the standard that we should accomplish or shoot for. closer we get to that, the better off our country will be. and if we have -- and again you said decades. it has been decades. and the reason there has been such a problem with this is because congress, the house and the senate, have failed to act to get comprehensive immigration reform and agree on what border security is. they all agree with border security. but we don't come together to do
it. so it forces somebody like a president trump to finally take a firm and -- a firm stand and say enough is enough. fix this problem. >> you are right about -- >> i think we should always work to have zero. >> you are right about congress' inability to act on this. >> absolutely. >> and the numbers show there is not a year without 20,000 and the reason it is 10,000 a month in the last couple of decades. let's talk about the tariffs. while there were some republicans who disagreed with the tariffs, it is notable that both senators for florida, rick scott and marco rubio supported the tariffs. you supported the tariffs. the president said -- >> i do. >> -- said their suspended but not off the table. why did you support the threat of tariffs on mexican imports? >> well, it goes to the border crossings that have come in. mexico has not helped us and they could have helped us. they helped under the obama administration. but they have not been at the
table on this and i commend president obrador for doing what he is doing now. in fact we put an amendment into the upcoming appropriation bills to redirect money at the southern border of mexico with guatemala to build a wall. and this is something we're going to help -- we've put in legislation to help mexico build this wall. >> but these -- >> -- because we want to give them the support -- >> there is a delay, so i apologize. when i'm jumping in you're not hearing me for another second. but when you talk about the tariffs, these are tariffs that cost american businesses and cost americans more, so why would you -- >> sure. >> i want to read from a letter you signed back in march of last year, joined more than 100 house republicans in signing a letter to the president opposing tariffs on steel and aluminum and according to the letter, tariffs are taxes that make u.s. businesses less competitive and u.s. consumers poorer. that is the letter, that is your
signature. so why would you want to do that? >> because the problem, like i said, we're at over 140,000 people coming into this country. how long are you going to let something go on without bringing resolution. so i think the tariffs were a way to go, and yeah, there would be pain on both sides. but if we stay the way we are, our country is going to be overrun and we know our facilities can't handle the people coming in and we don't have enough judges so something had to be done drastically. and again this goes back to the inaction of congress over the last 36 years and so we stood with the president to put tariffs on there to put pressure on the mexican government because when we met with mexican ambassador, they all tell us that they depend on a strong america. well, with this influx of people coming in overloading our system, that doesn't make america stronger, it weakens america. in addition to that, if you look at the amount of drugs that come into this country, 93% of the
heroin comes directly out of mexico. mexico's growing over 73,000 acres of opium and this comes directly into our country. so if we're going to be good trading partners and they want a strong america, they need to come to the table to help get some of the things under control. it is just as much their responsibility as ours and i stand with president trump and if they don't follow through with this, i think the president will follow through with the tariffs and i'll support him. >> let's switch to one other topic before we wrap up. this week the administration declassified details of this russian destroyer approaching uss chancellorsville the aircraft carrier in the pacific and the pentagon said there have been several, as they described provocation over the last few months and the latest one coincides with the bosom buddy declaration between china and russia. do you see the connection here between russia cozying with china and what we saw in the pacific this week?
>> oh, absolutely. and, victor, i appreciate you bringing this up because with all of the stuff that is in the news about russian collusion and investigations, these are the serious issues that are facing america that our attention needs to be on what russia is doing and what china is doing. and i think this is -- those two acting together, if you read the papers, xi jinping and vladimir putin are ticked off that the u.s. are putting sanctions on so many entities out of both of the countries, but if you go back to the north korea negotiations, and i want to illustrate this because this is why the sanctions are there, there is a unanimous decision vote at the u.n. that 12 countries would agree to sanctions on north korea. all 12 countries were supposed to put sanctions. china and russia backed away the sanctions and so we sanctioned these entities that were supposed to be helping us, instead helping north korea
funnel money through there and so now they're upset and so together they think they'll force the united states to do something against what we've already all agreed on, all 12 nations at the security council have agreed to put sanctions on north korea and those two walk away and the only recourse we have is to sanction the companies within the countries that are doing business with north korea. >> well we'll see what the fruit of those sanctions are. >> but thanks for bringing that up. >> certainly, from your position on the asia-pacific and nonproliferation sub-committee there in foreign affairs. representative ted yoho, good to have you on the show. well, we know that there are toxicology reports being processed right now in the three mysterious deaths at the resort in the dominican republic and as that is happening there is a couple in colorado who said they became horribly ill at that same resort. you should be mad that this is your daily commute.

president trump said the agreement with mexico will work if mexico makes the effort. so let's talk about if it, indeed, will work. to respond to that, jorge castaneda, the former foreign minister and good morning and thank you for joining us. >> good morning. >> so the president tweeted out that this deal will, quote, greatly reduce or eliminate illegal immigration from mexico to the united states. from what you know about what has been discussed and announced by the respective departments, will it? >> well, it certainly won't in the short run because what this -- the sense of this deal, as i understand it, is to send a message to the central americans, mainly to people in guatemala and honduras and then a little bit in el salvador they will no longer be able to cross mexico as easily as before to reach the -- the u.s. border. and once they are at the u.s. border, they won't be able to enter the united states as easily as before.
and if they enter, they will be sent back to mexico to wait in mexico for their asylum request to be processed. that message will eventually get to central america. and they are -- the people will decide if despite all of this it is worthwhile to keep trying or it is not. normally these things take time. it doesn't happen overnight. so that is a first point. that is very important to underline. this is not going to happen overnight. supporting it works. and that is a big supporting. >> so let's talk about the law enforcement redeployment element of this. mexico agreed to redeloy the national guard throughout the country and prioritizing the southern border. if those resources are taken away from combatting drug cartels or organized crime and they focus on mexico's southern border, are we just going to see the same levels of asylum-seekers just with a different national, more
mexicans instead of people from the northern triangle. >> unfortunately, we went through this in 2014 when there was a surge of unaccompanied minors from central america reaching the u.s. border. president obama asked then president netto to seal off the border for the unaccompanied miners which the president did sending troops and police from elsewhere in the country to the southern border. mexican violence began to surge also from late 2014 on ward to reach the highest levels in history the first four months of this year, 2019. so this is a movie we've already seen a little bit. it could be different because this is a new national guard. but this new national guard, the laws, the legislation was only approved something like two or three months ago. in fact, this new national guard does not yet really exist.
it is only now being recruited, trained, et cetera. so all of these decisions continue to be, i would say, more announcements than concrete facts. but they may be accelerated and perhaps they will have some effect. >> we'll see what the effect will be, if there is one. there is 90 days of review that both countries have agreed to undergo. former foreign minister from mexico, jorge castaneda, thank you for joining us. in the last night deal with mexico averts that second front on the president's trade wars for the time being, the situation, as you mentioned, being re -- re-evaluated with china and so let's get an analysis from rona farar, editor for the financial times and cnn economic analyst. thank you for being here.
first and foremost, i want to get your reaction to what happened overnight with this deal. >> well, the good news is that this averts a 5% tariff rate which was going to go into effect on monday and the markets will be glad about that. the problem is that the markets don't know whether to trust the president any more. you have to look at this in the context of the last two years. we've seen so much back and forth. so much flipping, so we have a deal now with mexico. but we have a three-month period in which the mexicans have to agree to a variety of regulations, a variety of things that have been put into place. it is unclear how they could do that. are they going to be able to curb migration and give them jobs and safety nets and these are difficult things so you have that period of uncertainty for another three months and at the end of the three months you are probably going to see some new news coming out of the china trade story. wilbur ross, the commerce secretary, has been empowered to come up with a new list of
chinese technology companies that might be banned from doing business in the u.s. that will be hitting at about the same time that the mexican agreement should be coming to fruition. what is going to happen? we don't know. the markets are going to remain very jittery because of that. >> i was going to ask if there is a connection between what happens with mexico tariffs and and what could happen with the trade talks with china. are there still open trade talks going on with china? >> there are. and both sides have reasons to make a deal. the u.s. growth story is probably going to get weaker in the next year. we're basically historically at the point where we should be having a recession. the president has tried to prop up the marngts in a variety of ways in order to keep them from falling and keep the economy strong into 2020 to increase his own election prospect. but i think that the problems between the u.s. and china are really big. they're not going to be solved in the next three months,
probably next two years, five years and not by this president with the way he's negotiated with the chinese. i've spent a lot of time talking with chinese investors. they feel they've really lost faith. they feel they've been embarrassed by this administration. they're really hunkering down for a long-term trade war. >> what does that mean for companies here in the u.s. when they look at the trade war and obviously there's some progress made here with mexico, yet to be seen how much solid stability it might actually bring, but is it a temporary stability for the markets right now, does it ease any concerns for companies who were very uncertain about where we were going? >> great question. so in an ideal world if you're going to pick a fight with china and there's some legitimate reasons to complain about china's trade practices. the u.s. all along should have been building relations with mexico, canada. you want to bring your allies
closer. a lot of companies have been considering moving some production back closer to home. mexico would be an ideal place to put that cost wise. but if companies feel, wait a minute, we don't know what the situation is going to be between the u.s. and mexico that's going to make them reluctant to do that. if this administration was smart they would make it very clear they would a good commitment to trade relations with mexico, that could actually encourage companies to move production closer to home. but fighting on all fronts and making it unclear what's going to happen, markets don't like that. companies don't like that. >> always appreciate your perspective. thank you for taking the time to be with us this morning. there is a huge celebration in london celebrating queen elizabeth's birthday and we've gotten our first glimpse of the duchess of sussex since giving
